our 5 yr. old has had few days of frequent urinating. when he goes it seems he stops abruptly, then a short time later has to go back in but has little or drops of urine to empty out. we did notice this happens more when he drinks milk or juice and when we are going somewhere/out of the house. i did have his dr. check his urine. no sugar or anything of note was found. they also did a finger prick test and his blood sugar level was 106, dr. said 105 the top of range. he did have lunch and drinks two-three hours before. dr. did not seemed very concerned about that. he does not seem to be excessively thirsty or losing weight. he is very active and seems to be healthy. any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated! thanks.View Thread
the dr. did not say it was diabetes. i guess i should of been more clear, i meant if anyone had a similar situation thinking it was diabetes. 105 being the top of the range for a finger prick test. he had lunch two-three hours prior to the test. the dr. told me this was a fine reading. no UTI or sugar in the urine. my grandmother had diabetes. does it just take one family member or many for the disease to be passed on easier??? thanks.View Thread
